About the property

5 Bedroom, 4 1/2 Bath

This spectacular beach front home in SummerCamp Beach is truly a vacation home like no other. Perfect for large or extended families, this Gulf Front home has 3 master suites all with a private luxury baths. Two bunkrooms provide 8 more beds offering plenty of sleeping arrangements for children of all ages. A gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances and custom cabinetry will delight those who truly want a first class experience. Designed from the ground up to take advantage of the ocean setting, this home puts you at the edge of the water with breath taking views for literally miles out to the Gulf of Mexico. A gentle breeze awaits you on the spacious screened porch that wraps the entire front of the house. Down below features a large gathering area where you can shower outdoors after swimming or beach combing. Two large family rooms allow for total living space flexibility with flat screen tvs in every bedroom. The unique architecture of the home provides massive windows throughout, offering amazing views of the entire beach area. With no neighbors to the left of right, you will feel like you have stepped into your private paradise. This home is truly one of a kind.

'Happy Ours' is located in SummerCamp beach. This resort community provides a unique beach experience that is both rustic and natural at the same time. At certain times during the year there may be seaweed that washes ashore and may decrease the amount of beach that is exposed.

There is a community pool within walking distance of the home. Kick back and enjoy breathtaking views of the gulf as you lounge under a cabana or swim in the pool.

If you are looking for adventure, walk down to the kayak shack and hop on one of the kayaks or canoes. Cruise the shallows of the gulf while getting up close and personal with the sea life. Watch out for jumping mullet!

Commune with nature as you walk along one of the many boardwalks in the community that wind through the undisturbed marshlands, wetlands and woods.

This is what old Florida feels like and you will sense that you have stepped back into a simpler time, where fishing, boating, shelling, swimming and reconnecting with family is possible. Located just 45 minutes south of the Tallahassee airport, getting here is quite convenient, but leaving will be very hard.

Our third vacation in this area but first in this house. It is truly a wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of twelve just returned from a week at Happy Ours. The home is stunning and the pictures don't do it justice. It was the perfect size for us all to spread out but also enjoy family time. We spent a great deal of time on the porch drinking coffee and watching the tide. We saw many birds, jumping mullets, hammerhead sharks, sting ray, dolphin, and lots of crabs. This beach is unique, in that there is much to offer for those that appreciate its natural beauty. We spent several afternoons in the pool, and made use of the kayaks and canoes several days. We took a day trip to Appalachacola, spent a day on St George Island, and visited the Gulf Specimen Marine Lab in Panacea for the third time. We cooked all of our meals at the house except one, in the extremely well stocked kitchen. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our week at Happy Ours and are hoping to return.

Perfect Place for a Family Gathering!

  • 5 of 5

This house is fabulous! Our family of 13 spent a week here and EVERYONE from 6-75 thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The house is so well designed for large groups - screened porch on upper level - big screened area on the lower level - large open seating areas - and big dining room table. The house and kitchen are well appointed. The location is amazing - we all enjoyed exploring the tidal pools and grass flats at low tide - saw tons of marine life- played in the bioluminescent water at night - went fishing - and so much more! The community swimming pool and the community kayaks were a huge bonus. Good restaurants and grocery shopping were nearby as well as seafood markets. The welcome packet was very helpful and Erika very responsive when we had questions. This was as perfect a week as we could ever expect. We use VRBO a lot and this house was the best ever - would absolutely recommend this vacation home.

Great family gathering place!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at "Happy Ours"! It was perfect for our family of three generations in town to celebrate an FSU graduation! Plenty of room for all with multiple master suites and an enormous kitchen/great room for gathering everyone. The large wrap around porch was a great place for coffee and watching the wildlife. We cooked and ate out. Enjoyed Angelo's several nights and it was only 10 minutes away. Great food and sunsets, too!

Erika was great to work with and we plan to return next year for another graduation celebration. Thanks for making it such an easy process!

WOW what a beautiful beach home and the view from all the windows was awesome. Our family of 10 (4 teenagers - 18, 17 and two 15 year olds) thoroughly enjoyed the week. The accommodations fit our family perfectly. Loved the remoteness and not having to share the beach with anyone else. We all enjoyed walking out after the tide had gone out to see what kind of marine life we could see.

Erika was a pleasure to work with very helpful and always answered our emails quickly.
